Unique Experiences

If you choose one of our special trips, you take part in making up your own travelling schedule by choosing one or a few of the below experiences. To some extent, unique experiences can also be added to a combo package, and some of the experiences are already included in our packages. Please use the “Needs and wishes” field in the inquiry form to specify which experiences you are interested in.

Visit a Maasai Village

Visiting a Maasai village is a chance to gain an insight into the fascinating traditions and lifestyle of the Maasai people. Often, it is also possible to buy local, traditional handicrafts. The cost of a visit is usually about $50/car.

Hot-Air Balloon Safari

Imagine floating above the ground in complete silence while the sun rises above the horizon and the savannah wakes up to a new day. A hot-air balloon safari is a unique experience and a great memory to share with your travel companions. Enjoy the silence and calmly observe the animals from above without them taking any notice of you. Several of Tanzania’s parks offer hot-air balloon safaris, including the Serengeti.

Safari Adventure at Night

Experiencing wildlife in the national parks after dark is quite different from daylight safari tours. Many animals are more active after sunset, and during a night safari you get a unique opportunity to experience how nature comes to life as darkness falls. As your field of vision narrows, you will become increasingly aware of other sensory impressions. Can you hear the hippos as they wallow in the water? Do you smell the elephants crossing the road in front of you?

Excursions in Zanzibar

The fascinating Stone Town with its exciting history and culture is well worth a visit. And why not make a stop on the way and visit one of the famous spice farms? From Stone Town you can take the boat to Prison Island and see the giant turtles that live there. If you go for a spice tour, not only will you get scent memories of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg, but you will also learn a lot about the history of this island. 

Swim with Dolphins or Try Diving or Snorkelling

Zanzibar has wildlife to discover both on land and in the sea. Ask your hotel about the different unique experiences available.
